In my roundup of world-builders for SF and fantasy worlds (www.wherethemapends.com/writerstools/writers_tools_pages/world_builders.htm
) I mention a company called ProFantasy
If you're at all into mapmaking or world building for fantasy or SF stories or games, you've got to go check them out: www.profantasy.com
The ProFantasy products I use for creating my worlds are Fractal Terrains
and Campaign Cartographer Pro
Fractal Terrains creates amazingly realistic world maps at the click of a button. Campaign Cartographer Pro lets you build fantasy-style terrain maps (or starcharts or space stations, etc.) from scratch or by importing your world map from Fractal Terrains.
Both programs have free demos, so go check 'em out and start playing (er, creating sensible and useful maps).
I need some talented mapmakers to design the worlds, starships, and moons our story is going to take place on. Maybe you could be one of the best. And maybe these ProFantasy tools will help you do it.
